GOP baseball team coach: 'We need to play this game'

UT Austin graduate Zack Barth, who was injured in the shooting at the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia Wednesday, spoke to Good Morning America about the incident.

Texas Rep Roger Williams appeared hold back tears today as he thanked Capitol Police for saving him and his colleagues from the deranged gunman who left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in hospital.

"Congressman Williams was not shot, however a member of his staff was shot and is receiving medical attention", his office said in a statement shortly after the shooting. He also interned for U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller and for House Representative John Culberson, and he was a fellow for the Office of the Governor in Texas. Barton said Williams also aimed to protect other teammates in the dugout as well as Barton's young son.

A video published by the New York Post shows the moments of the shooting Wednesday morning at a Republican congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

"We plan to have a prayer service and then play some baseball", he said.

"He said that the gunman did aim directly at him and he knew he needed to get up and move.he was hit in the calf, went down..."

Shot in the hip, Mr. Scalise lay bleeding on the field as a gunbattle raged around him, leaving a streak of blood as he crawled from the infield, waiting for help.

After those four long minutes, however, police arrived and 'took a step forwards when they didn't have to, they could have stepped backwards but they stepped forwards, ' Williams said.

"When I got into the dugout".

Rep. Williams confirmed on social media Wednesday morning that Barth was the aide and that he is expected to make a full recovery. "We need to play this game; it's the game of America, it's bipartisan".

"We're blessed, but these Capitol Police saved all our lives".

As to the role he'll play in the game tomorrow, Williams said, "some of us are on the injured reserve list right now", adding, "if you're not sure which one I'll be, I'll be the one coaching third on crutches".
